Worilds is garbage, I hate that they are paying him $10 million. Hes a 2nd/3rd tier pass rusher. It was nice to see him finally win a few matchups last season but hes very replaceable. hes here because they have no experienced LBs behind him. Rental player
Side note, Thaddeus gibson is tearing it up in canada....he was a big time man crush of mine that year but fell victim to a numbers game to keep aaron smith off of IR
He signed in Canada a month ago and played his first game for the Toronto Argonauts earlier this week, and was credited with one whole special teams tackle. If that's not tearing it up, I don't know what is.
The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"
The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"
This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

Thad was not a good LBr. Didn't want him. Speed guys who don't like contact are not Steelers.

I believe that injury was taken into consideration with the signing bonus they offered Pouncey. The reported signing bonus they offered Pouncey didn't break the bank. As a result, it won't hurt the franchise over a long period of time if Pouncey doesn't work out for whatever reason. If they had offered Pouncey 30 million signing bonus then I wouldn't agree with the deal. Considering all the factors, Pouncey received a fair deal that doesn't hurt the team, made the Steelers look good to their own & other players, and gave incentive for Pouncey to perform well and feel valued coming off a serious injury. This type of signing is why some players love to play for the Steelers. The Steelers generally seem to treat their players fairly. As a result, I believe it keeps many players from leaving the team when they become FA's.
The Steelers can take a wait and see approach with Ben for another year. Ben will have his turn at some point.
Just stumbled upon this the other day
I did love him as a prospect though...perfectly build for a rush OLB. I hated seeing him go, thought he was a good developmental guy

The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?
